Review: Lawful Overdose by Justine Elvira

*Warning: This book is for mature audiences. It contains drugs, sex, underage drinking, harsh language, and is panty melting hot!

Since the death of her sister, Tessa Grayson is invisible at home. Her parents barely speak to her or show any affection, so Tessa seeks affection from men.

It’s the summer going into Tessa’s junior year of college. Instead of going home for the summer, she stays in her small college town with her best friend and roommate, Piper. To make money, Tessa and Piper waitress at a local bar and grill. It’s a hotspot for college kids and a few townies.

On her first night working after a depressing visit with her parents, she meets Jaxon Wyatt. Jaxon just transferred to Eastern for his senior year of college to be closer to his brother. He is mysterious and badass, exactly what Tessa wants, but is trying to stay away from.

After a night of wild partying, Tessa is looking to get lost in Jaxon. Their attraction is undeniable, but Jaxon wants more. Jaxon and Tessa become closer, but he is hiding a secret. A secret that could break the bond he and Tessa share.

What will happen when Tessa finds out that Jaxon isn’t who he claims to be? Can Tessa continue a relationship with someone who supports everything she’s against, or does Jaxon have one more secret up his sleeve?

* Recommended for 18 years and older.

Lawful Overdose is a fun, sexy book about a wild free-spirited girl who falls hard for the new guy in town. Tessa is a fun flirty girl who likes to party and hook up. She drinks, she goes wild, she has sex but she also has her limits. She does take drugs and refuses to be around anyone else who does. The loss of her sister deeply effected her in ways she couldn't begin to imagine. With all her pain, she's never been close with anyone since. That is, until Jaxon hits the scene.

Jaxson, the brother of her boss, recently transferred to her college to finish out his senior year. Tessa is immediately taken but him but tries to keep their relationship within her strict guidelines of hook ups only. But Jaxson is a man on a mission and refuses to share. But he has his own secrets and those rock Tessa's foundation.

I really enjoyed this story but I wasn't surprised by the twist. That's okay though because I don't need a twist to complete my stories. I like knowing the layout. It was fun. Jaxson was hot. Tessa was challenging. There was one part where Jaxson pissed me off and the Tessa's reaction pissed me off more. But alls well that ends well.
